Talk & Walk with Claude Stephens of Bernheim - Nov 4th
On Tuesday November 4, 2014, from 6:00-7:30 pm, beginning at the Carnegie Center, the public is invited to our second “talk & walk” about sustainability with Claude Stephens of Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest.
Claude will lead an informal chat about sustainability and regenerative design with a focus on ecology. We will then take our conversation into downtown New Albany by dividing into groups to visit the sites for the 2015 public artworks near the Carnegie Center. Each group will consider their site from a sustainability perspective and then we will gather back at the Carnegie Center to share our observations. Come help us envision a future where we live in better agreement with nature as we explore a shift from sustainable to regenerative thinking. Claude Stephens is the Facilitator of Outreach and Regenerative Design at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest. As an ecologist and educator Claude is excited about a future where ecology and economy work in partnership.
Attendees should meet by 6:00 pm at the Carnegie Center for Art and History. Directions are available online at www.carnegiecenter.org/contact.html.

Memoir Writing Workshop, “What’s Your Story?” - Nov 7th
On Friday November 7, 2014 from 2:00-4:00 pm at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library in downtown New Albany, Indiana, author Kristine Adams will present a memoir writing workshop titled “What’s Your Story?” in the Library’s Strassweg Auditorium. This program is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required; please call 812-949-3527 to register.
About the workshop, Adams writes, “I've been on the journey of writing my own memoir for some time now. On the way, I've discovered good and bad methods to approach the challenge. Memoir-as-genre is enjoying a prominent rise in publishing, quickening broad interest as well as prompting personal experimentation with the form. I’ll share many resources that I've found worthwhile, and help you jumpstart your own process. In fact, I provide everything necessary to get underway – just bring your memories!... There is continuing proof that ‘owning one's truth’ brings out the best, for oneself and often for whole families. For those who have already begun their writing journey, I’ll share options about how to move ahead with your work.”
Kristine Adams has been a featured speaker at conferences, and her work has appeared in commercial, nonprofit and private publications. After beginning study in journalism and design, she changed her academic focus to psychology and behavior analysis. She has found outlets for her art and writing everywhere she has lived.
Astronomer Edwin Hubble in New Albany - Lunch & Learn
New Date! Wednesday Nov. 19, from 12:00-1:00 pm - Registration opens Nov 4th
On Wednesday November 19, 2014 from 12-1 pm at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana, Dr. John R. Hale, Director of Liberal Studies at the University of Louisville, will present the program “Astronomer Edwin Hubble in New Albany”, as part of the Carnegie Center’s Lunch & Learn series.
Edwin Hubble, the most important astronomer since Galileo, was a teacher at New Albany High School during the 1913-1914 school year. En route from Oxford, where he had studied as a Rhodes Scholar, to Mount Wilson in California, where he would discover the existence of galaxies, the "Red Shift", and the expanding universe, Hubble made a stop-over at the Falls of the Ohio. While here, he lived in the Louisville Highlands and commuted to New Albany to teach. One of his students, Jack Roberts of New Albany (who was Dr. John Hale’s great-uncle), used his Brownie camera to record Hubble's hikes in Floyds Knobs and his visits to Silver Hills. The rare photos featured in this presentation include the first ever picture of the future astronomer looking through a telescope, which Hubble borrowed from New Albany High School for a demonstration to his students.
*Please note the date change for this Lunch & Learn program, from our usual third Tuesday of the month to the third Wednesday. This program is free, but registration is required (please call 812-944-7336 or email firstname.lastname@example.org). We will begin taking registrations on November 4. Due to the expected large crowd, there will not be tables in the room for guests to eat lunch. We suggest guests visit one of the many restaurants in New Albany’s downtown for lunch after the program. This program is sponsored by the Carnegie Center, Inc.
